The name Tarsis comes from the back story of my Space Marine chapter, the Silver Dragons. They inherited the planet from the Ultramarines (although not the same planet as features in the Uriel Ventris stories, coincidentally named Tarsis Ultra; at the time I came up with the name, I wasn’t aware of the already-used planet name).
I’m an average but avid modeler with about average painting skills (maybe slightly above average if I’m generous). I love to build models and love painting them a bit less than I love building them. I have been at it since the late ’90s and have been loving it ever since.
